Abstract Surface and ground waters, sludge, soils and aerosols were sampled at a land reclamation site. The site has received large quantities of anaerobically digested sludge for several years. Samples were analyzed for viral and bacterial components to determine the impact of large scale sludge application on the environment. Sixty-eight water samples from streams, reservoirs, wells and runoff were processed for bacteria and viruses. Water samples upstream (S-1) and downstream (S-2) of the site show that the downstream site is lower in total coliform (TC) than the upstream site, while there are no differences in fecal coliform (FC) or fecal streptococcus (FS) levels. Water samples from Reservoir 3 which drains approximately 5,000 acres of land to which sludge has been applied indicate TC levels higher than those in a control reservoir which drains untreated land, with no differences between FC and FS. Six samples contained virus which were confirmed by subpassage. Three of these were found to be contaminated and contained poliovirus 1.
